You're Fabulous......Tilda!!


Today's my day off.....woohoooooooooo!!! And I'm goin' on a little trip!! I have mentioned before that I design cards for my friend Phebe who owns The Town Scrapper in Petrolia, Ontario. Well, today I am driving the hour and a half it takes to get there to see her! That is where I get all my precious Magnolia stamps!! She carries lots of other stuff too, but my favourites are the Tildas and the Edwins!!

Anyway, apparently there have been requests to purchase my cards from customers! So that is my first big adventure for 2008.....I will be selling my creations on consignment in Phebe's store!! How exciting!! So I've spent the last couple of days stamping the backs of my cards, packaging them up with envelopes and putting a label on each one with my information.....I call them Kraftin' Kimmie's Kreations!! Is that too cheesy?? I've also made up little business cards and stamped on them too! Can you tell I'm a little excited??

Also I am meeting my Mom (she's a stamper too) and Dad (he's not....but he'll drop her off at the store with me and go to Timmy's for a coffee....heehee) in Petrolia and then we will go out for lunch.....after the store visit, of course!! Fun!!

So this card I made over the weekend with my new Tilda and her basket stamp! For this one I stamped her in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink on 140lb watercolour paper and used my SU markers to colour her in. The colours are taken from the Fancy Pants designer paper that I used. The card base is Perfect Plum along with Cameo Coral. Tilda is all sparklie on her wings with the help of my trusty Stardust Stickles and I also put a tiny little ribbon bow on her basket with a glue dot. I added three Plum eyelets on the right hand side but my favourite is the sentiment panel. I took a Heidi Swap white flower and used a brad to attach it to the card. Then I made the sentiment layer using my round scallop punch from SU and two circle punches. The sentiment is from Verve Visual from the Uplifting Phrases set and the circle border is from the Wonderful Wishes set. I used my Stardust Sakura gel pen and went over the border and the sentiment to make it sparkle and added the little dots in each scallop using my white gel pen. Then I pop dotted the whole thing onto the white flower! Ta daaaaaa!!

So I guess I'd better go get ready to go on my little trip!! Have a great day!!!

I love this card Kimmie, the colours are so gorgeous as is the layout and colouring. Boy, did we have fun at Phebe's store, in fact we made a second trip back there for more stuff after lunch. Poor Dad, we left him again to go back. He's such a good sport, right Kimmie? nd (aka Kimmie's Mom)

Hi Kimmie, I hope you've had a wonderful time with your friend, your mom and dad. It sounds like fun and very exciting! Your cards are beautiful so I guess you are going to do such good business over there in Petrolia;)

Please show us your business card, I'm a little bit curious:D

Hugs,
Inge.

Love the Tilda's. They are adorable. You have created beautiful cards with them.
Congrats on the Town Scrapper and have fun at Tim's with your parents. I used to go to McD's with mine for a Filet a Fish, they loved that and so did I. Family, that is what life is all about.
TTFN, Bela

Kimmie -- just love what you did with the glitter pens and that bow on the basket is a FANTASTIC touch! I would love to get a note on how much you charge for your cards (probably off list ;^)* as I have no idea what I would do in the consignment situation... and I have been asked to do something like this...)

And -- what are you stamping on the back of the card???
Curious minds want to know...
